ZE-50-ULH Power Generation Module
** Now for sale via our new website
Designed using the most advanced technologies, the ZE-50-ULH power generation module from Zuccato Energia is a compact solution for the exploitation of small, low-temperature heat sources. As such, it is ideal to recover waste heat from engines and industrial processes as well as from geothermal or thermal solar sources.
The ZE-50-ULH requires 550Kw of
thermal power ( Biomass Boiler )
It has easy connections via the flow/return and waste heat can be used in conjunction with fans etc.
